在我们这个富裕的国家,没有人应该饿。我们呼吁加利福尼亚国会代表团采取果断行动,消除饥饿,并倡导解决我们州面临的系统性贫困的政策。

通过积极立法加强SNAP

2021 Federal Priorities

儿童营养再授权

加州反饥饿倡导者请我国代表团支持保护和加强儿童营养计划并优先投资于低收入儿童的大胆建议。但是,任何投资都必须在不损害服务于低收入社区的计划的前提下进行。

加州近一半的儿童生活在贫困中或附近,这是所有州中最高的。补充营养援助计划(SNAP)是最重要的儿童饥饿计划。 2018年《农业法案》拒绝了有孩子的家庭的SNAP时限,并破坏了广泛基础分类资格,这是战胜童年饥饿的关键胜利。但是,由于有这么多儿童遭受饥饿,我们不能简单地保护现状。自2010年《健康无饥饿儿童法案》以来,儿童营养计划并未得到改善。

2021 Child Nutrition Priorities

Together We Protected SNAP from Regulatory Attacks!

Over the past several years, we successfully protected SNAP from regulatory attacks that would have weakened the program and exacerbated hunger across the country.

In September 2018, the Trump administration announced that they would propose a federal rule requiring health and nutrition benefits to be considered in immigration public charge determinations. After years of fierce advocacy led by the national 保护移民家庭 campaign and multiple lawsuits, on March 9 2021 this harmful rule was permanently blocked nationwide. Following this change, California health and human services leaders issued a joint statement, a new Public Charge Guide for individuals and families in 英语西班牙文, and a letter to counties providing information on this significant change.

无身体状况的成年成年人(ABAWD)

This cruel rule would have mandated that people with “ABAWD” status could only get CalFresh for three months in a three-year period if they did not meet certain special work requirements. It would have cut off CalFresh for an estimated 700,000 people. Thankfully on October 18, 2020, a federal judge in the District of Columbia struck down the ABAWD rule.

The long-standing Categorical Eligibility rule simplifies access to CalFresh for households receiving TANF benefits, and allows states to raise income reporting thresholds to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. If the proposed federal rule proposed in July 2019 would have taken effect, it would have reduced the total number of households participating in SNAP by 9 percent and lowered annual SNAP benefits paid out nationwide by 5 percent. In January 2021, the USDA withdrew this proposed rule.

This September 2019 proposed rule would have changed how states take households’ utility costs into account when determining the amount of CalFresh benefits households qualify for. In reality, this would force people to choose between paying their utilities and purchasing food, and disproportionately and detrimentally impact people with disabilities and older adults. In January 2021, the USDA withdrew this proposed rule.
